Via dependable garden commentor Ozark Hillbilly, the Guardian reports:
A worried resident in Germany alerted police to what he thought was a second world war bomb in his garden. Officers found … a particularly large zucchini…
They said in a statement Friday that officers determined “the object, which really did look very like a bomb” was actually a 40cm (nearly 16in) courgette.
The offending vegetable, which was very dark in color, weighed about 5kg (11lbs). Police believe someone threw it over a hedge into the garden…
“Gifting” the unwary a zucchini of that size has to be some kind of violation of the Geneva Convention, amirite?
As of yesterday, we still hadn’t gotten a killing frost, even though it’s New England and it’s November. But the tv weather people predict ‘possible wintery mix’ by next weekend, so presumably we’ll get back to what-passes-for-normal soon…
What’s going on in your garden(s), this week?
Speaking of bombs…
These are the “Antifa supersoldiers” the alt right was scared of

Scores! The guy who couldn’t attract more than a dozen or so allies to his “Free Speech” rally last summer is hella jealous:
… The rally was intended to kick off an upswell of political pressure to force the removal of Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. On Saturday, the crowd started small but eventually grew to nearly 100 people. Some counterprotesters arrived, and several arguments broke out but ended without arrests. Speakers ignored the skirmishes.
John Medlar, who organized a controversial Free Speech rally in Boston in August that many criticized for being a platform for racists, attended Saturday night’s rally. He noted that unlike his event, which was heavily policed and effectively drowned out by tens of thousands of counterprotesters, Saturday’s rally was allowed to proceed unfettered.
“When we come into town and have one of our own rallies, everyone freaks out and they feel they have to separate everybody,” he said…
How do you think the “Resist Fascism” dudes feel? All the terror hype on Fox News, and they couldn’t even draw enough maddened counterprotesters to get any decent b-roll!
